Hi Meenu, thank you for writing to me. From the information you have provided, i understand that for most of the day you are on your feet, so first of all i would like you to do ‘heel raises’, ie, while standing, take support, and raise your heels and lower them 10 times, you can do this any time you get a break in between patients.

Hello Madam,

Please suggest me what will i do?
Prajakta

Hi Prajakta,
Thank you for writing to me, I have a few suggestions , you have not mentioned if you are doing any exercise at all, so i think, the safest way to get started is by walking atleast 20 minutes , 5 to 6 days a week, and gradually increasing it to upto an hour, you could join a gym, yoga or any other fitness class, according to your liking.

Hi,
I am student in university and I want to lose weight, currently 76kg and I am 20 years old. I don’t cook often but eat readymade meals or pizza, fish finger, chips or chicken fillets.
Thanks

Hi Chandar Lal,
Thank you for writing to me,
You have mentioned that you eat a lot of junk food, pizzas, burgers etc- i understand that you are away from home, but unless you make some radical changes in your diet, this problem will persist, Please try and have healthier food such as the local cuisine , fresh fruit , yoghurt( dahi,0 plenty of water, i cannot tell a 20 year old to stop fast food all together, but have it as a treat once a week, if you follow a healthy diet the other days of the week. You also need to start some physical activity, i suggest a 20 minute walk atleast 5 days a week to begin with.
i hope this helps you, yours in fitness- sonali
